We ate here a couple of times. The food is not bad but not great either. The pizzas are ok but lack a little something. Same for the pasta dish (I had the ricotta raviolis I think) it was ok but a bit plain. The place in itself has nothing special and can even seem a bit shady, service only... More

You can watch the chef prepare the pizza from fresh ingredients. There is an extensive menu of styles of pizza toppings, and I had the one that included local cheese from Sao Antao. The crust was not fabulous, though, to me as a New Yorker and used to superb crust. The pizza comes for one, although it is large enough... More

It was nice to eat some italian food, as in cape verde, you mostly eat fish. So it was nice to try something else! I saw the chef preparing the pizza's, which he made right then and there. Very fresh and very tasty. Dessert was also good. Only thing that would make the evening even nicer is if we could... More

This is my favorite Italian restaurant at Cidade da Praia. I love the pizzas variety, it has a good environment and the waiters are friendly and thoughtful.

Great food nice staff if you can't speak Portuguese it's fun as there is no English menu so have to guess what your ordering. Great place just don't think it was worth 5 stars. Take a taxi to it and you can easily hail a taxi on the road.
